The brief for this project began with “we want a concrete bunker.” Equally as excited by concrete, there was mutual trust and connection between client and architect from the very early stages of the design process. Situated on an exposed corner site, privacy from the street was central to the brief. Given the desire for privacy and the client’s love of concrete, they were keen to reduce the number of windows, leaving the public facade as uninterrupted as possible.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Derek SwalwellAs a practice interested in volume and daylight and how these can draw out the richness of materials, the challenge was to unearth these opportunities whilst avoiding punctures to either street facade. By carving skylights and courtyards through the building mass, we were able to draw light into the space. A planted courtyard draws light into the entry and formal dining space. The dining space is enclosed by glazed doors, allowing light to penetrate through the hallway. A skylight over the double height entry washes light down the off-form concrete wall, highlighting the subtle changes in color and texture. A skylight over the ensuite bath similarly highlights the figured character of the marble wall lining.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWhilst the external face is monochromatic and austere, the interior – by contrast – is richly textured. The warm timber battened ceiling offsets the cool tones of the concrete, whilst also acoustically softening the space. Oak joinery, heavily figured marbles, sheer drapery, and delicate light fittings are the softer counterpart to the harder concrete architecture. The result is a house with a bold but private street presence enclosing a light-filled, richly textured and layered interior.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Derek SwalwellProject gallerySee allShow lessU House / atelier NgNgSelected ProjectsManuel House / Estudio Rocamora Diseño & ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Ella Leoncio, Glen Chamberlain, Kathryn McCullough Save this picture!© Derek Swalwell+ 48Curated by Paula Pintos Share 2018 Area: 544 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeChamberlain ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrightonAustraliaPublished on February 21, 2019Cite: “Light Vault / Chamberlain Architects” 21 Feb 2019.

March 15, 2005 Senior Editor Regular News Compensating the wrongfully convicted explored Compensating the wrongfully convicted explored Dedge case has lawmakers examining how to make it right when system breaks down Jan Pudlow Senior Editor “It was like I was dropped on another planet when I got out,” Wilton Dedge said of finally being a free man, cleared by DNA testing, after serving 22 years in prison for a brutal rape he did not commit.“Everything has changed so much.. . . It’s like I’m 20 years old in a 43-year-old body,” Dedge said at a February press conference in Tallahassee, standing with his parents and lawyer Sandy D’Alemberte.Now the question is whether and how the state of Florida will reimburse Dedge for more than two decades snatched from the prime of his life—and whether legislators will create a process to compensate others wrongfully convicted.Early indications look promising.D’Alemberte said he has support from Rep. David Simmons, R-Longwood, and Sen. Mike Haridopolos, R-Melbourne, for his claims bill.Addressing the bigger picture of a mechanism to compensate not only Dedge but others wrongfully convicted, Senate President Tom Lee announced his decision recently to direct the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Sen. Daniel Webster, R-Winter Garden, to make recommendations that could include possible legislation.On March 2, Webster filed SB 1964, a shell bill that simply states the legislature’s intention “to enact legislation to provide for the compensation of individuals who were wrongly imprisoned and whose innocence is established.”“If we do something, I would like it to be a broad statewide policy,” Webster said of the proposed alternative to a claims bill. Likening the process to a condemnation of property in an eminent domain case, Webster said: “What they have done is taken a part of a person’s life and you have to pay for that. They took a life, and time and earnings.” Webster added: “I don’t think there would be a lot of resistence to compensating for pain and suffering.”In a prepared statement, Lee said: “With the emerging technology and the advances in DNA testing, we may see more cases like that of Wilton Dedge. We have an excellent criminal justice system in Florida, but there are those limited cases when the system breaks down.“Currently, the only avenue for compensation in Florida law is the claims bill process—yet it appears that our present system may not sufficiently address those few cases when someone has been imprisoned for a crime they clearly did not commit.”The Dedge case is a painfully slow chronology to eventual exoneration—a decade after the Innocence Project first sought DNA testing and three years after the DNA testing actually cleared Dedge as the rapist. After two trials, Dedge was convicted for the 1981 rape, based on what D’Alemberte calls junk science of microscopic hair analysis, testimony of a notorious jailhouse snitch, a discredited dog handler and his wonder dog that supposedly could track cold scents months and years later, the 17-year-old victim who described her rapist as 6 feet tall and 180 pounds though Dedge is a 5-foot-5-inch slender man. Jurors also disregarded alibi testimony from six co-workers at an auto body shop who said Dedge was at work at time of the crime.In the end, it was the perseverance of a group of pro bono lawyers working with the Innocence Project—including Milton Hirsch of Miami and J. Cheney Mason in Orlando—that made sure DNA testing on physical evidence finally cleared Dedge’s name.“I’ve had people ask me: ‘What’s a number? What will make it right?’ I haven’t been able to come up with one, and I haven’t really talked to anyone who could put a number on it,” Dedge said. “Things I’ve missed; I’ve lost family, friends. I can’t put a price on it.”Putting a price on it is what D’Alemberte, former president of Florida State University and the ABA, is trying to do as he works pro bono to get a hearing at the legislature on a claims bill for Dedge. Pressed to come up with a number that would compensate Dedge and his parents, who took out a second mortgage on their house and emptied a pension fund to pay for their son’s legal defense, D’Alemberte said: “$4.8 million.”Armed with a report from expert economists on Dedge’s lost wages, D’Alemberte said, “The expert economists can’t tell us anything at all about how to value the loss of freedom. Somebody else is going to have to figure that out. I hope it means a lot to all of society. It certainly meant a lot to Wilton.”What also means a lot to Dedge is not leaving behind others who remain locked in prison but insist they are innocent.“I’m doing it for myself, but I’m also doing it for friends who are still in prison,” Dedge said. “I know people in there who have been trying to get DNA testing done for years, and they are still being denied. Hopefully, (legislators) will do something for the Innocence Project, also, because they spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and I don’t know how many thousands of man hours trying to get this done. Just going by the statistics, there are still thousands of people in prison who shouldn’t be there.”D’Alemberte seized upon a quote from President Bush’s State of the Union Address: “Because one of the main sources of our national unity is our belief in equal justice, we need to make sure Americans of all races and backgrounds have confidence in the system that provides justice. In America we must make doubly sure no person is held to account for a crime he or she did not commit—so we are dramatically expanding the use of DNA evidence to prevent wrongful conviction.”D’Alemberte tied that quote to his client’s hope that his case will spark the creation of a fair system to exonerate others, including support for the Innocence Project and the offshoot Florida Innocence Initiative at Florida State University College of Law, housed at D’Alemberte’s office, that struggles financially.“Maybe I am reading too finely between the lines of President Bush’s remarks, but it seems to me that he is calling for something very much like that. He is not directly asking for support for the Florida Innocence Initiative; he at least is indicating his belief for having a system in place that will take care of that,” D’Alemberte said.“And Wilton has made that point to me repeatedly that as a result of this, hopefully, we are opening doors for people who have bonafide claims of innocence.”

For many South Africans, the country’s proudest sporting moment came when we won the African Cup of Nations on home turf in 1996.Football is intensely followed, and the quality of the local game keeps improving – as demonstrated by the increasing number of South African players-in-exile among the glamorous European clubs.Local teams, organised in a national league plus a plethora of knock-out cups, are followed with passion by paint-daubed, costumed, whistling and cheering fans. Mercifully, the country has been spared the spectre of football hooliganism.Bafana BafanaBanyana BanyanaGlamour clubsPremier Football LeagueKnockout competitionsFirst DivisionBAFANA BAFANAOne of the first gifts that democracy brought South Africa was its first truly representative national football team.In 1992, two years before the country’s first democratic election, the united South African team came into being, playing Cameroon in its first match in Durban on 9 July. It was a triumphant occasion for the side that came to be known as Bafana Bafana – “The Boys” – as they edged the West African powerhouse by a goal to nil.However, the win concealed the negative effect that apartheid-enforced isolation had had on local football. This lack of international experience showed as South Africa lost four matches in a row – to Cameroon, Zambia, Nigeria and Zambia – in failing to qualify for the 1994 African Nations Cup.When South Africa hosted the 1996 African Nations Cup, however, South Africa proved they belonged in the finals by defeating Tunisia 2-0 in the final. It was during the team’s run to the title that its nickname, “Bafana Bafana”, became known around the world.BANYANA BANYANASouth Africa’s senior women’s team, Banyana Banyana – “The Girls” – have traditionally been the strongest team in southern Africa and one of the best in Africa.There is, however, one hurdle that Banyana have yet to overcome: Nigeria. Had it not been for the West African powerhouse, South Africa’s women would have laid claim to the number one ranking in Africa a number of times in recent years.Banyana Banyana were crowned Cosafa (Confederation of Southern African Football Associations) champions in 2002 and 2006. In continental competition, the team finished runner-up to Nigeria at the CAF African Women’s Championship in 2000, and second at the All Africa Games in 2003 and 2007.GLAMOUR CLUBSKaizer ChiefsSouth Africa’s favourite football club never seems to play an away match. “The Amakhozi” often draw more supporters at away games than their opposition.Founded in 1970 by Kaizer Motaung – who made his name in the United States when the American league was drawing such superstars as Pele, Johan Cruyff and Franz Beckenbauer – Kaizer Chiefs are one of South Africa’s most successful teams.Twice the winners of South Africa’s Premier Football League since its launch in 1997, the Soweto, Johannesburg-based team secured their first African title in 2002 when they won the Cup Winners Cup – renamed after Nelson Mandela – by defeating Inter Luanda of Angola in the final.Orlando PiratesFormed in 1937, Orlando Pirates has a support base extending across the country’s borders.Two-time winners of SA’s Premier Football League since its launch in 1997, “The Buccaneers” are the only South African team so far to have won Africa’s premier club competition, the Champions League, a feat they achieved in 1995.Like Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates – who are also based in Soweto, Johannesburg – are seldom disadvantaged when they play away from home, with fanatical supporters spread throughout South Africa.The fierce traditional rivalry between Pirates and Chiefs makes for one of the biggest derby matches in the world. In November 2007, on the day preceding the 2010 Fifa World Cup™ draw in Durban, the Chiefs-Pirates derby was broadcast throughout Africa and 43 European countries, a first for South African football.Mamelodi Sundowns, SuperSport UnitedWhile Chiefs and Pirates have long battled for the title of South Africa’s most popular club, other outfits have emerged to challenge for the position, among them two Tshwane/Pretoria-based clubs: Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United.Backed by billionaire mining magnate Patrice Motsepe, Mamelodi Sundowns have the finances to ensure a squad with depth and quality. The club is often compared to England’s Chelsea, which rose to prominence partly through the backing of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich.“The Brazilians” have been the most successful team since the formation of the Premier Football League in 1997, winning the title on five occasions, most recently in 2007.Since then, however, they have had to surrender the title to another “youngster” among South African football clubs. SuperSport United was formed in 1994, when pay-television company M-Net bought Pretoria City and renamed the club after its popular sports channel.In recent years, SuperSport United has reaped the benefits of all-round consistency under coach Gavin Hunt, and of having one of the most successful youth academies in the country.PREMIER SOCCER LEAGUESouth Africa’s top football league, featuring the country’s best 16 clubs, came into being in 1997.The Premier Football League (PSL) has helped raise the standard of club football in South Africa, providing the sport with better media coverage and much-improved revenue through strong sponsorship deals. It has also provided a platform for local players to make their mark and catch the eye of overseas clubs.Sponsorship boomIn June 2007, the PSL pulled off an astounding coup when it signed a R1.6-billion broadcast deal with SuperSport International.In August 2007, corporate heavyweights South African Breweries (SAB) and Absa Bank announced a joint sponsorship of more than R500-million over the next five years for South African football. SAB is behind Bafana Bafana, while Absa sponsors the PSL’s Premier Division.In February 2008, Nedbank announced that it would be putting up R20-million in prize money for the Nedbank Cup knockout competition as part of a five-year, R400-million sponsorship of the local game.And in August 2008, cellular giant MTN committed the same amount – R400-million over five years – to the local game, while taking over the title sponsorship of the Top 8 knockout tournament.These deals combined have made South Africa’s Premier Football League the seventh biggest earner of sponsorship revenue among football leagues worldwide.Premier Football League champions:2008/09: SuperSport United2007/08: SuperSport United2006/07: Mamelodi Sundowns2005/06: Mamelodi Sundowns2004/05: Kaizer Chiefs2003/04: Kaizer Chiefs2002/03: Orlando Pirates2001/02: Santos2000/01: Orlando Pirates1999/00: Mamelodi Sundowns1998/99: Mamelodi Sundowns1997/98: Mamelodi Sundowns1996/97: Manning RangersKNOCKOUT COMPETITIONSA number of knockout competitions are played alongside the league fixtures in South African football.Nedbank CupA knockout competition modelled on England’s famous FA Cup, giving lower league teams the chance to do battle with premier league clubs, has been in existence since 1978, under various names: the Mainstay Cup (1978-1987), Bobsave Superbowl (1988-2002), Absa Cup (2003-07) and, from 2008, the Nedbank Cup.With a total prize purse of R19.3-million, including R6-million for the winners, R2.5-million for the runners-up and R1-million for the losing semi-finalists, the Nedbank Cup is the most lucrative domestic football competition in Africa.Cup champions:2009: Moroka Swallows2008: Mamelodi Sundowns2007: Ajax Cape Town2006: Kaizer Chiefs2005: SuperSport United2004: Moroka Swallows2003: Santos2002: not played2001: Santos2000: Kaizer Chiefs1999: SuperSport United1998: Mamelodi Sundowns1997: not played1996: Orlando Pirates1995: Cape Town Spurs1994: Vaal Professionals1993: Witbank Aces1992: Kaizer Chiefs1991: Moroka Swallows1990: Jomo Cosmos1989: Moroka Swallows1988: Orlando Pirates1987: Kaizer Chiefs1986: Sundowns1985: Bloemfontein Celtic1984: Kaizer Chiefs1983: Moroka Swallows1982: Kaizer Chiefs1981: Kaizer Chiefs1980: Orlando Pirates1979: Kaizer Chiefs1978: Wits UniversityMTN 8The MTN 8 – formerly the Top 8 and Supa 8 – is contested at the beginning of each Premier Football League season by the top eight finishers of the previous season.Now known as the MTN 8 Knockout, after cellular operator MTN took over the title sponsorship, the tournament boasts a R8-million winner-takes-all prize – while guaranteeing each team R800 000 simply for participating.Top 8 champions:2009: Lamontville Golden Arrows2008: Kaizer Chiefs2007: Mamelodi Sundowns2006: Kaizer Chiefs2005: Bloemfontein Celtic2004: SuperSport United2003: Jomo Cosmos2002: Santos2001: Kaizer Chiefs2000: Orlando Pirates1996: Orlando Pirates1995: Wits University1994: Kaizer Chiefs1993: Orlando Pirates1992: Kaizer Chiefs1991: Kaizer Chiefs1990: Mamelodi Sundowns1989: Kaizer Chiefs1988: Mamelodi Sundowns1987: Kaizer Chiefs1986: Arcadia1985: Kaizer Chiefs1984: Wits University1983: Orlando Pirates1982: Kaizer Chiefs1981: Kaizer Chiefs1980: Witbank Black Aces1979: Moroka Swallows1978: Orlando Pirates1977: Kaizer Chiefs1976: Kaizer Chiefs1975: Moroka Swallows1974: Kaizer Chiefs1973: Orlando Pirates1972: Orlando PiratesTelkom KnockoutThe Telkom Knockout competition, which features all 16 Premier Football League teams on a knockout basis, is African football’s second most lucrative domestic competition after the Nedbank Cup.The competition was first held in 1992 and has existed under a number of different names, including the Coca-Cola Cup and the Rothmans Cup.Telkom became the new sponsors in 2006, and in 2007 paid out R14.2-million in prize money, including R4.25-million to the winners.Cup champions:2008: Ajax Cape Town2007: Kaizer Chiefs2006: Silver Stars2005: Jomo Cosmos2004: Kaizer Chiefs2003: Kaizer Chiefs2002: Jomo Cosmos2001: Kaizer Chiefs2000: Ajax Cape Town1999: Sundowns1998: Kaizer Chiefs1997: Kaizer Chiefs1996: Umtata Bucks1995: Wits University1994: Qwa Qwa Stars1993: Umtata Bucks1992: AmazuluFIRST DIVISIONBelow the Premier Football League, South African football’s First Division is divided into two – the Inland Stream and the Coastal Stream – with each stream made up of eight clubs.At the end of each season, the winners of the two streams meet in a final, with a place in the Premier Football League at stake (replacing the team that finished last in the PSL). The second-placed team, however, still has a shot at making it into the PSL.That club takes on the two second-placed finishers from the First Division, as well as the team that finished second-last in the PSL, in a mini-tournament, with the winner earning a place in the top league.
South African president Jacob Zuma andFifa president Sepp Blatter attending theWorld Cup final draw in Cape Town inDecember 2009.(Image: The Presidency)The first of January 2010 marked South Africa’s most important year since 1994, said President Jacob Zuma in the opening words of his New Year’s address to the nation.“Together as a nation we set the tone and made history in April 1994. We embarked on a phase of reconciliation and forgiveness, and worked hard to build one nation, united in its diversity.“We began the socio-economic transformation of our country to build an inclusive society, out of the racial and ethnic divisions of the past. We have done well in this regard, over the past 15 years.“The year 2010 is our next critical moment. We have won the greatest marketing opportunity of our time, the rights to host the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Together as all South Africans, we must make this one of the most successful projects we have ever undertaken as a nation!“The World Cup must revive the spirit of unity and patriotism in the same manner that the 1995 Rugby World Cup brought the nation together.“It must remind us that there is a lot to celebrate about our country. Our successes have made us an inspiration to the world in a manner that many South Africans do not even realise.“We have proven to the world that it is possible to emerge from a horrible conflict, and work together as various political parties, to build a successful, peaceful, stable, multiparty constitutional democracy.“Together we have built a country that proudly espouses non-racialism and non-sexism, and which enshrines the supremacy of the Constitution and the rule of law. Together we have built an accessible democratic State, founded on the values of human rights and freedoms. Among those who have played some part in these achievements are the opposition parties represented in our democratic parliament“Together we must make 2010 the year in which we renew our commitment to national unity and nation building. This we must do as all political parties, traditional leaders, business, labour, youth, sports bodies, women, the media, religious leaders and all sectors.“It must be a year in which we put South Africa first, and take forward our collective mission to shape this country into one of the most successful constitutional democracies in the world. It must be the year in which we work together to make the Soccer World Cup the biggest turning point in the marketing of our country.“The year 2010 must be the year in which for the first time, we all communicate positive messages about our country to the world – the successes and possibilities. We have to put the culture of negativity behind us.“Together we must ensure long-lasting benefits for the country. There is a lot to be gained from the World Cup. We can already see the fruits of the tournament. We have new magnificent stadia, roads and new-look international airports. Through the major boost to the construction industry, many of our people obtained work and training opportunities, and this helped to reduce the impact of the recession.“Working together we must ensure that the tournament enhances our country’s global competitiveness. It must contribute to long-term economic growth and the creation of decent jobs.“Fellow South Africans, as hosts, we must be welcoming and hospitable to the thousands of international visitors and soccer teams. We must all be active ambassadors of our country! We must support our National team, Bafana Bafana. With the nation behind them, they will perform well and make us proud.“Most importantly, we must make 2010 an exciting and most enjoyable year for all of us!“Happy New Year and Happy 2010 World Cup to you all!”Source: The Presidency

Officials expect 150,000 to 200,000 mail ballots to be dropped off on Election Day.“This is not really a new phenomenon,” San Diego County Registrar Michael Vu said. “We’re just likely to have a higher volume of outstanding ballots.”The bulk of the votes should be in by about 11 p.m., the registrar’s office said, but even after all the ballots from Election Day are counted, the large amount of mail ballots means only about 55 to 60 percent of the vote will be counted Tuesday night.“It’s not over on election night and it hasn’t been for a long, long time,” Vu said. “Close contests are not decided until all the ballots are in the count.”It could take weeks to count all votes from any elections that end up being very tight, he said. “Between mail ballots and provisional ballots, a close count always comes to the very end,” the registrar said. “We must do our due diligence to make sure everything is right.”The results for each contest, however, must be certified 30 days after Election Day, on July 5.
